COVID19 has presented a situation that forces us to communicate more effectively and think more adeptly, move with greater agility and respond more quickly when faced with a major threat to our residents, staff and economic stability. Developing a mindset that creates this type of dexterity will be critical as the potential exists for recurring or unfamiliar challenges. As we face this “new normal” we need to anticipate and plan for the unexpected.

July 16 – Framing and Fostering Crucial Conversations
This session provides approaches which help leaders, managers and staff work towards productive exchanges rooted in a foundation of trust, honesty and transparency. It offers exercises and explores strategies to create a greater sense of confidence in the conversation dynamic. It examines factors that cause uneasiness and a variety of reactions that impede developing and sustaining respectful dialogue. The use of group activities multiplies opportunities for effective interactions that avoid or overcome barriers that hinder successful communication.

August 25 – Nimble Thinking through Crisis
During this session we will provide solutions for leaders, managers and staff to enhance their critical thinking skills in rapidly developing solutions and removing obstacles that emerge when faced with an immediate critical event. It examines the differences between a distinct emergency and an ongoing crisis, providing tools for sustaining energy and clear thinking for the duration. The use of exercises, group activities and strategies provide opportunities to breakdown personal barriers that impact the way we react and respond to crises.
